5 Scenic Drives in Pennsylvania

Scenic Winding Road

Whether you’re a Colmar native or in North Wales to spend time with family, now is a great time to enjoy the breathtaking Pennsylvania scenery. Fortunately, that’s something you can do right from the window of your Mazda vehicle. From famous American landmarks to historic towns nestled along the Delaware River, to endless bird watching opportunities — there are plenty of ways to appreciate life in PA. The locals at North Penn Mazda compiled our top 5 scenic drives in Pennsylvania — we hope you’ll give them a drive!


Longhouse National Scenic Byway

For a major change of scenery, follow this path into the depths of the Allegheny National Forest. The Longhouse Byway is actually an access road for recreational activities like camping, fishing, and hiking near Lansdale, but it makes for an amazing road trip in its own right. As befits a scenic route, the Longhouse byway’s meandering curves force you to go slow, roll down your windows, and enjoy the breeze.

Delaware River Valley

If postcard-perfect views of country farmland are more your speed, try a drive through the Delaware River Valley — one of the most popular scenic drives Pennsylvania has to offer. Stretching between Easton and Mount Bethel, this 19-mile route passes through historic riverside towns and serene stretches of fertile farmland. If you’re looking for a bigger adventure, make a stop at the 7-mile Tekening hiking trail for cliffside photo ops and bass fishing.


Seaway Trail

Try this brief but beautiful 14-mile seaside drive if you only have a few hours to get away for a scenic drive in Pennsylvania. If tours are running, the two historic lighthouses near downtown Erie’s Bayfront District are a lot of fun to explore. If you have all day, the Seaway Trail can also be a means to an end when you arrive in Presque Isle State Park — where you’ll find a wide range of family-friendly outdoor activities like swimming and biking.

High Plateau, PA Scenic Byway

Of all the scenic drives in Pennsylvania, High Plateau might be the biggest crowd-pleaser. Wildlife enthusiasts often visit here to spot bear, deer, and elk. Trails along the Allegheny Ridge, Two Run Rock Vista and Fish Dam Run Scenic View are a goldmine for photographers, and the adventurous among us should head for the Chuck Keiper wetland hiking trail. Or visit the Old St. Severins Church near Snow Shoe — an amazing piece of history built by Benedictine monks in 1851.

Wide Open Road

Gateway to the Endless Mountains

Lauded by National Geographic as “one of America’s most scenic drives,” this high-elevation stretch of Highway 6 is known for spectacular views of Susquehanna River and the Endless Mountains. Before you set off from Tunkhannock, we recommend setting aside some time to hike and bird watch in the mountains at Riverside Park. It’ll take more than one trip to fully appreciate this 38-mile scenic drive in Pennsylvania cliff country.
